Appeal for help over industrial disease victim
SOLICITORS of a man in his late 70s are appealing for help in identifying the company he worked for when he contracted a work-related industrial disease.
Albert Kirk, 79, from Hartcliffe, was exposed to asbestos during the course of employment with the company in Avonmouth in the 1950s.
At the time the site was operated by Philblack Limited, which later became Sevalco. Mr Kirk, who was in his early 20s at the time, was working for a firm of civil engineers, whom he knew as D C William Press.
His employer's liability insurance will compensate him if he can prove who they are.

John Kilmister, from Pattinson and Brewer Solicitors, is confident that Albert Kirk actually worked for a company that is now called Press Construction Ltd.
However, uncertainty remains over who is liable.
Mr Kilmister is anxious to hear from anyone who worked for William Press, Press Construction Ltd or any of its partner companies. He believes there must be families in the area who can help to identify the firm.
He is urging people with information to contact Pattinson & Brewer on 0117 917 1100.
